Start your small-group expedition to the Holy Land in the arts-and-culture capital of Tel Aviv, where you’ll tour Bauhaus architecture in the White City district, now a UNESCO site. In the port of Jaffa, scour the flea market and Artists’ Quarter, before following the coast to Roman ruins at Caesarea and the artists’ village of Ein Hod. Biblical sites on the itinerary include Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Beatitudes and Nazareth. In Jerusalem, visit the Holocaust Memorial, Old City, Western Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Marvel at the Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, one of the most significant archeological discoveries of the 20th century.
